Mono County Works to Fill Vacancy on The Board of Supervisors

With the recent death of Supervisor Bill Reid, the Mono Board of Supervisors has had to start the process to find a replacement.

mono_courthouse_10-08At their meeting Tuesday, the board approved a letter to Arnold Schwarzenegger asking the Governor to find a replacement. This may end up being a formality since the Governor also has the option to leave the position open until the people of Mono District 4 can elect a new supervisor for the remainder of Reids term.

The board decided not to recommend a list of possible replacements, instead leaving the choice to the Governor, according to County Administrator Dave Wilbrecht. If they so choose, a community member can let the Governor know that they are interested in the position and send a resume. With over half of Reids term remaining, this may end up on the ballot in June.

Reid had run un-opposed and won the job in June of 2008. This leaves over two years left in this term. If this does end up as a new election, candidates would start to file in February with the filing deadline in March.
